2013: a year of firsts for me
it was the first time our family had ever been to a Disney park and we were fortunate enough to go to both Disneyworld in February and DisneyLand in October. it was the first year of preschool for my youngest and the start of the 1st grade for my oldest. it was the first time i had ever spoke or taught and i was able to do it twice this year. first at the Canada Photo Convention in April and then again at the Adventure Always in October. it was the first time i was able to collaborate with another photographer, our amazing friend and remarkably talented photographer fer juaristi and we made history with the first ever wedding session at the top of a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Gros Piton in St Lucia.
2013 was an amazing year. a year that i felt i grew both personally as well as professionally. i met so many wonderful people, made new friends and strengthened old friendships.
i want to thank those who i have met somewhere along the way and shared a conversation with. thank you to those of you, whom i have yet to meet but are reading this and will one day meet. thank you to my amazing couples who bring me along on your journey and allow me to document your celebration with 100% trust in me and allow me to be witness to your honest emotions and connections.
you all allow me, in different ways, to do what i love and for that i am forever grateful to each and every one of you.
thank you, i wish you all much love and happiness and i can’t wait to see what firsts 2014 will bring.
so much can be understood by so little
this seems to be my personal mantra as i shoot my connection sessions. maybe it’s my own personal insecurities or maybe it’s because of the insecurities we all have. but i often look for the minimal to show the powerful connection between my couples. sometime you can see it all and other times all i feel is needed is a simple part of the whole.
here are a few of the incredible connections my couples allowed me to witness this past year.
only if you find peace within yourself will you find true connection with others
